Sugekasa type of jingasa samurai hat with Takeda crest - Leather - Japan - 19th century
Good condition, see description - 12×33×33 cm

I offer for auction an uncommon sugekasa type of jingasa made of hard boiled leather. The jingasa (lit. "camp hat") was a type of hat worn by Japanese warriors when traveling or encamped. The sugekasa version has a typical conic shape.

There is a samurai crest on it (a rhombus) linking it with the Takeda clan. Active from the late Heian period until the late 16th century. The clan was historically based in Kai Province in present-day Yamanashi Prefecture. The clan was known for their honorable actions under the rule of Takeda Shingen, one of the most famous rulers of the period.

In quite good conditions some minor scratches on the top and inside as seen in the pictures.

Dimensions are around 33x12cm.
Period 19th century.

Will be sent with tracked parcel.
